Abstract

ROLEST, The Robertson Trust Laboratory for Electronic Sterilisation Technologies, is a unique multidisciplinary research facility dedicated to the development and application of novel electrically based disinfection and sterilisation technologies. There is a growing need to control and prevent infection and this is a high priority in today’s healthcare agenda. Against this background, ROLEST has been established to investigate and develop electro-technologies to combat public health problems and to provide solutions to difficult, and emerging, clinical challenges, as well as supporting the development of new medical technologies and procedures. Sterilisation technologies developed within ROLEST include Pulsed Electric Fields, Pulsed Ultraviolet Light, High-Intensity Narrow-Spectrum Light, and Advanced Oxidative Technologies, all of which demonstrate strong biocidal effects for use in a variety of applications. The successful development and application of these electrotechnologies by researchers at ROLEST aims to stimulate and enrich research into optimising innovative technologies to provide engineering-based solutions to complex scientific problems ranging from hospital acquired infection to bio-terrorism.
